Coffeyville Regional Medical Center plans to hold O.K. Kids Health and Safety Fair

This year Coffeyville Regional Medical Center is teaming up with our local Boys and Girls Club of Southeast Kansas to host a day camp and health fair for our youth in the community, Camp Blue Mission and O.K. Kids Health and Safety Fair. Our local Boys and Girls Club chapter provides a program called Keystone. Keystone is the Boys & Girls Club Movement’s ultimate teen program for youth ages 14 to 18. This unique program provides leadership development opportunities for youth to participate in activities, both in and out of the Club, in three focus areas: academic success, career preparation and community service. With the guidance of an adult advisor, Keystone Clubs aim to positively impact teens, their Club and local communities.

Each year, the Keystone group is in charge of a big project that helps the community and this year they are helping put on this event. During the day camp, the youth of Boys and Girls club will show what is offered at our local club. There will be a chance for some hands on learning and educational time.

Coffeyville Regional Medical Center is excited to partner with our local youth and to continue to provide an educational event to our town of Coffeyville.

Camp Blue Mission and O.K. Kids Health and Safety Fair will be held the first Saturday in May.

It is free, for children pre-school age and up, and is designed to educate kids about health and safety.  The “Under the Sea Adventure” is the theme this year and it is sure to be a lot of fun.

Exhibits will be set up both indoors and out.  Outdoor exhibits include police cars, fire trucks and ambulance.  A helicopter will also land during the event to let kids see the inside of a medical helicopter.

Indoors there will be lots of exhibits from area businesses and organizations.  Fun activities such as inflatable jumpers that the kids can bounce around in will be sure to keep them entertained.   Of course, OK Kids wouldn’t be same without the Kansas Kutie Clowns and their famous balloon hats. There will be tons of prizes that will be given away throughout the morning, including two bicycles. Coffeyville Regional Medical Center and The Boys and Girls Club of Southeast Kansas will be handing out goody bags to all kids who come to the event. Bring the kids out on Saturday, May 4th for a morning of fun and learning.
